, the warnings by our ambassador, chris stevens, the last message he wrote before he was murdered was talking about the security requirements that were necessary. why didn't the president of the united states know with it? maybe it was one of the briefings that he didn't attend. but the point is the president should have known about it, action should have been taken. then during an obviously there is information that the c.i.a. people were ordered to stand down three times and then afterwards, of course, that's really where i think the people are infuriated. to go out and say something that was totally false, totally false. there was no mob. there was no demonstration. and these surveillance information that you talk about both from the drone and they got them from the consulate, they're now classified as top secret. we've asked for those. congress has a right to know. the american people have a right to know. >> gretchen: they do. but unfortunately, they may not know 'til november 15 when the hearings start and that is ten days after the election. senator john mccain -- >> i can just tell yo

. look, this is serious stuff. chris stevens' diary clearly indicated he was concerned. apparently there was some 13 warnings about the security there. but the most outrageous thing, my dear friends, is that five days after it was clear that this was a terrorist attack with mortars and rocket propelled grenades, they trotted out the u.n. ambassador who said this is a spontaneous demonstration bread by a hateful video. now, that is one of the most disgraceful performances i have ever seen. first year cadet at west point would have told you that that was -- you know, there is -- people sitting around benghazi, grab your mortar, honey, we're going to a spontaneous demonstration. >> gretchen: but senator, looking ahead then to these next debates, i don't know if the president will have it any better off because foreign policy, when we start talking about this, when mitt romney starts talking about it or the moderator, there is going to be a lot of questions to answer and it may be the first time that the president is forced to answer questions about libya. >> well, he did answer questi
